    • 90+4' All over! A comfortable 2-0 win for Real Sociedad over Athletic Bilbao, who ended the game with 10 men.
    • 89' We are into four minutes of time added on.
    • 88' Bergara tries a through ball, but the offside flag goes up against Vela.
    • 86' Iraizoz dives to keep out the header by Prieto. Iraizoz has produced some fine stops this evening. Could have been worse without his efforts between the sticks.
    • 84' Aduriz taken out of the action late by Griezmann. Gomez throws the ball in, but Sociedad hold firm once again.
    • 83' De Marcos guilty of a blatant late challenge on Vela out wide. Chance for Sociedad to throw the ball into the box.
    • 81' Real Sociedad will be up to sixth spot with nine points from six matches after this win.
    • 80' A change coming for Sociedad as Illarramendi departs to be replaced by Cadamuro.
    • 79' Muniain tries to pick out Aduriz on the run, but fails to find his man. Sociedad almost over the winning line.
    • 77' Sociedad with 16 shots at goal compared to five from Athletic. De Marcos working hard to close down space, but looks like a hopeless cause for his side.
    • 76' Gorka Iraizoz has conceded more penalties than any other goalkeeper in Europe’s top five leagues since 2009/10. He has now shipped 21.
    • 75' Antoine Griezmann has scored more goals with his ten in Anoeta in La Liga than any other Real Sociedad player since 2010/2011.
    • 74' Athletic looking far from content out there. Look like they have real problems, and being down to ten men isn't going to help their mood.
    • 73' GOAL! Vela slips the penalty low and hard into the net. Iraizoz went the right way, but couldn't get there. Sociedad with a 2-0 lead now.
    • 71' Agirretxe departs to be replaced by Vela for the home side. Going to be a penalty and Vela is going to take it.
    • 69' PENALTY TO SOCIEDAD! Amorebieta blocks Prieto's shot with the aid of an arm. And that is going to be a red card. Amorebieta has been sent off.
    • 68' Glorious chance for Griezmann, but Iraizoz makes a brilliant diving stop to keep the ball out.
    • 67' A third change of the night for the visitors with Fernando Llorente given the nod to take over from Castillo.
    • 65' Marcelo Bielsa is looking far from happy in that Athletic technical area. His side have not been overly impressive this evening, and have paid the price.
    • 63' Athletic have shuffled their pack with Lopez departing to be replaced by Gomez.
    • 62' Amorebieta has been booked for a late challenge on Griezmann. No real surprise to see the defender booked for that one.
    • 60' Athletic being pinned back further and further in their own half, and have really paid the price for their own hesitancy.
    • 58' GOAL! Griezmann finds the opening goal for Sociedad. Turns on Agirretxe's pass to slam the ball low into the net. Athletic all over the place at the back. A 1-0 lead for the home side.
    • 56' Iraizoz on the deck and in need of a spot of treatment. Looks like he suffered a dull one there.
    • 55' Illarramendi with a brilliant run into the box. Chased by Iraola. Ends up prodding the ball narrowly wide of Iraizoz's left-hand post.
    • 54' De le Bella with plenty of time out wide, but he just lifts the ball straight out of play. Poor delivery in a promising position.
    • 53' Asier Illarramendi has been booked for a late challenge on Xabier Castillo. Bookings mounting up out there.
    • 52' Iturraspe departs the action to be replaced by San Jose. Think there was a real concern there of a red card after his earlier booking.
    • 51' Iturraspe manages to get the ball out from De le Bella's cross.
    • 50' All four goals Real Sociedad have scored on home soil this season have arrived in the second-half.
    • 49' Prieto swings the ball across goal at some pace, but no takers on hand in front of Iraizoz. That was a superb delivery.
    • 48' De Marcos showing plenty of energy out wide, but the moves break down as Sociedad look to counter attack.
    • 47' De Le Bella takes the ball away from De Marcos, who is shut down very quickly out wide.
    • 46' We are off and running then in the second period of this match.
    • 45' The referee picks up the ball after blowing his whistle. 0-0 at half-time. All to play for in the second period.
    • 44' Alberto De la Bella decides to go for goal, but his right footed shot from outside of the box is high and wide of the goal.
    • 42' Bergara thumps a shot at goal which Iraizoz nudges past a post.
    • 41' This looks like it is going to be all square at the break. Nothing much between these sides. Sociedad have enjoyed the better moments in the first period, but Athletic look dangerous on the break.
    • 39' Iturraspe gets the ball back to his goalkeeper with Agirretxe applying the pressure up front.
    • 37' Susaeta slams a shot inches wide of goal from the Lopez cutback. Decent effort, but the ball stays out. Better from Athletic.
    • 36' Agirretxe trying to get on the end of a cross. Athletic being really tested here every time a ball ends up in that box.
    • 35' Illarramendi drills the ball at the visiting goal. Got real power behind the shot, but Iraizoz is on hand to pull off a brilliant diving save.
    • 34' Aduriz is taken out of the action late by Gonzalez. Free-kick to the visiting side.
    • 33' Athletic almost paying the price for giving the ball away under no pressure. Amorebieta not exactly coping too well in defence, it must be said.
    • 32' Griezmann produces a brilliant diving save out of Iraizoz from the edge of the box. Superb hit, but an equally impressive stop.
    • 31' Gonzalez forced to look sharp to nick the ball off the toes of Aduriz as he bundled his way up the park.
    • 30' Athletic launching several long balls at Aduriz without too much joy so far. Would perhaps be better served getting the ball on the deck.
    • 29' Aduriz tries to get a header at goal, but he is tracked by Martinez as the ball flies harmlessly over the bar.
    • 28' Zurutuza showing some real skills before seeing a shot blocked by a visiting shirt.
    • 27' Bergara goes for goal from outside of the area, but drags a shot wide. Never really testing the opposition goal there.
    • 26' Athletic can move above their local rivals with a win tonight. Sociedad one point better off after five games of La Liga.
    • 25' Disappointing end to the move as Lopez can't pick out Aduriz on the far post. Sociedad deal easily with the cross.
    • 24' All very finely poised so far in this one as Lopez dashes forward for Athletic.
    • 23' Amorebieta doing well to deal with the free-kick in his own box as he rises to make sure Sociedad can't get a free header on goal.
    • 22' Gurpegi the latest man into the book for a late, late challenge on the forward running Griezmann.
    • 21' Prieto actually fortunate to avoid conceding a penalty. Looked to be a clear handball in his own area from that corner.
    • 20' Sociedad quick to rampage out of their own box leaving three visiting players standing offside from a corner.
    • 19' Bright piece of play by Lopez to leave a couple of home players for dead only for the cross to fly straight out. Disappointing cross really.
    • 18' Castillo well positioned to head clear the cross from Illarramendi.
    • 17' Estrada has been shown a yellow card for a late challenge on Iker Muniain.
    • 16' Sociedad breaking up most of the play in the middle of the park with some relish. Looking the likelier side.
    • 15' Gurpegi heads out of his own area from a hopeful cross by De la Bella. Solid defending.
    • 14' Prieto dinks the ball at goal, but no real power on the shot as Iraizoz takes without too much fuss.
    • 13' Zubikarai almost spills a cross from Lopez. First time the home goalkeeper has really been called into action this evening.
    • 12' Real Sociedad have only won one of their last nine against Athletic in La Liga - drawing two and losing six.
    • 11' Susaeta displays some super control to carry the ball out from the back. Linking well with Iraola.
    • 10' A very open game early on with both sides willing to play football. Bergara showing some nice footwork in the middle of the park.
    • 9' Griezmann drills the free-kick at goal from 25 yards out, but Iraizoz makes a solid stop to prevent the ball from hitting the net.
    • 8' A booking for Iturraspe after he was deemed to be guilty of felling Zurutuza.
    • 7' Decent effort by De Marcos seconds later. Wasn't an easy angle, but the shot is narrowly over the bar. Athletic really pushing forward out there.
    • 6' Markel Susaeta throws over the corner seconds later, but Fernando Amorebieta's shot is over the bar. We remain at 0-0.
    • 5' Athletic can't really believe that decision. Should have been awarded a penalty. Astonishing call.
    • 4' Athletic see Aduriz taken out of the action late. Aduriz clearly fouled by Martinez in the home box, but the referee doesn't want to know. Poor decision.
    • 3' Antoine Griezmann tries a shot at goal from inside the box, but easy enough take for Iraizoz in the visiting goal.
    • 2' Athletic playing a pressing game early on, but Amorebieta forced to hammer the ball out of his box.
    • 1' We are off and running in this one at the Anoeta.
    • 18.55 Good evening and welcome to LIVE coverage of the Basque derby between Real Sociedad and Athletic Bilbao.
